      That's interesting, my BP used to always run low. Then a year or two ago I started having the nurses ask me if my BP was always high. Nope, always low. But whatever changed in me has caused it to always run high now. I have been trying to get into a local doctor to follow me for small problems like this and can't find one that's taking new patients. The medical system is really screwed up.

      I would seek a different cardiologist - preferably at a university or other research hospital. The heart, and fluctuating BP is nothing to mess with! It is still the number 1 threat to a man's life.

      Mine has been high too. My Dr. Told me to buy a cuff and check it everyday. I had to double my medication dose.

      Thank you all, maybe I am just letting my fears get the best of me. I sat beside a relative with brain cancer and that scares me.

      Time to rein those wandering thoughts back in! Do you have a heart? The biggest threat to your life is beating in your chest! Do you drive? Each day in the US, 102 men, women and children lose their lives suddenly and without warning - in traffic collisions. Something to think about as you drive to your next appointment. Rather than worry about an unknown future, enjoy the life that you are blessed with right here and now. None of us possesses the future. We have only today, so why not try to enjoy it to the best of our ability?

      wanted to update... went to appointment, got passed off from the oncologist specializing in brain tumors, to a hematologist. Checking clotting ability. worried for nothing. All good, results pending.
